So in just a little under three weeks it will be Partizan, well the Other Partizan to be exact. In a way it's like my first anniversary back into wargaming. OK I had been painting again for a bit before the show but it was going to the show with Barry that got me back into the swing and looking at building up armies etc. not just painting up what I already had.
As such I will be going if I can swing it and that means placing an order with Peter at Baccus. I want more ECW and I have already mentioned the plans for extending my French Napoleonic Army. I also expect Total Battle Miniatures to be there as well which would mean more houses to be bought. I have plenty of credit in my wargaming pot based on some ASL related sales over the last month or so as well as tree units of ECW in 15mm I ave on e-bay right now with bids in place. I don't see myself looking to buy anything else at the moment as I have plenty of figures to finish off other projects.
Talking of projects, I have a game organised for Thursday and will take the opportunity to have a two player playtest of the rules. This will be the biggest 6mm Napoleonic battle I have tried in years and should either break the rules or supply good information on how they will work out. I am fielding both the Prussian and the French and expect the game to be interesting if nothing else. I will set VP's for different locations or objectives so here is hoping all works out well.
Talking of spending, I needed boxes to carry the figures to battle so nipped to Staples intending to get the usual A4 box files. I spotted some slim ones about half the height of a normal box. These were £5 each. Well I could buy three Foolscap boxes with plastic ends for under £9 which were cheaper or these boxes that were more practical and save on space. Well I bought 4 at £5 and a pack of the three for 15mm figures, well you can never have enough can you?
Still talking about spending, I also have been hanging my nose over the paint stands being sold on e-bay that hold over 80 Vallejo paints (not that I have that many, yet!) I probably will go for it as it will help keep the area tidy, speedup paint selection and help me keep an eye on just what paints and washes and inks and foundations and er.... well you get the idea, but has anyone else got one?
